Welcome to Year 1
A place full of opportunities to make happy memories.

Our teachers this year are Mrs Harper,
Mrs Coulson, Mrs Sheasby, Mrs Snape and Mrs Menear. 

Our topic for the autumn Term is Toys.
Our topic for the spring term is Poles Apart.
Our topic for the summer term is Get Out Of My Swomp and Flight.

Autumn term will provide a transition period for year 1 children where we aim to bridge the learning between Reception and Year One in order to let the children settle happily in their new year group. Please feel free to make an appointment to talk about your child any time. 


We have daily phonics lessons. Our teachers use the Letters and Sounds  phonics resource which aims to build on children's listening and speaking skills, and to prepare children for reading by developing their phonic knowledge. Each year group works through different phases starting at phase 1 in Nursery until the end of Year 2 when children complete phase 6. In Year 1 we are currently working on phase 3. Take a look at the Letters and Sounds website to find out more.....


                                           Things to remember in Year 1

  • Remember to have PE kits in school with your child's name in all items. We have PE on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon.  No earrings are to be worn on these days.
  • Please make sure reading books and planners are in school every day. Children are expected to read at home at least 3 times a week.
  • Spellings will be given each Friday.
  • Children can bring a bottle of water or sugar free squash to drink during the day.
